How old are you and how much weight are you trying to lose?
Eating more often will help you avoid feeling overly hungry, which puts you at risk of giving in to a tempting food. Eat a small meal or snack every 3 to 4 hours to keep your energy levels up and your hunger at bay. Stay away from unhealthy, high-fat or high-sugar foods; these are quickly digested and will cause dips in blood sugar that will leave you feeling hungry. Choose small snacks and meals that contain high amounts of fiber and/or lean protein, such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables and beans.
